    Abstract

    I will review our current knowledge on the most magnetic objects in the Universe, a small sample of neutron stars called magnetars. The powerful persistent high energy emission and the flares from these strongly magnetized (1015 Gauss) neutron stars are providing crucial information about the physics involved at these extremes conditions, reserving us many unexpected surprises. © International Astronomical Union 2014.
